Yet Another Birth Announcement Hoop

Its been about nine months since there have been any new babies in my life, but you might remember this hoop and this hoop from last summer. My cousin and his wife welcomed a baby girl last Wednesday, so I quickly whipped up another hoop so I'd have it done to bring to Vermont with us for Easter weekend...


See that little cow on the left?


I really wanted to put a cow on this hoop because my grandparents were dairy farmers, and my cousin and I spent a lot of time together on my grandparents' farm growing up. I lucked out and found that little cow on (of all things) some Hello Kitty fabric I had. And the colors of the bunting perfectly match the colors in the nursery... a happy coincidence.


I got to see the baby while we were up in Vermont, and she's beautiful. You forget how small they are when they're that new :)

Such a cute hoop. Love the cow!

I know. I always think our little one is so small (he's 8) and then I have to re-evaluate when I see newborn babies. :)

We have not one but TWO baby cousins on the way this year, the first one coming in the next month. Making these hoops for them is one of the things I am MOST looking forward to :-) And that little cow is so sweet, love it.

Your birth announcement hoops are one of my favourite handmade baby gifts. I am going to make one for my new niece. I love this project, and the cow. Vermont is a very special place.
